Dream It, Be It Program
In the past century women around the world have made historic advances in nearly all
areas of public life, becoming active participants in the work force, electorate, classroom and global economy. Today, women regularly strive for political office, advanced degrees and corporate boardrooms that were once out of bounds.
In all of these advances, girls were historically thought of as the beneficiaries, as opposed to the catalysts, of change. That thinking began to shift with the work of economists who recognized the measurable contribution educated, empowered adolescent girls could make to the global economy.
The innovative Dream It, Be It curriculum was designed based on rigorous research, including interviews and surveys of hundreds of girls in 22 countries. It can be delivered as a facilitated 8-week small group discussion or a full day conference.
In June 2020, we participated in the first ever Ontario-wide Dream It, Be It digital conference hosted by Soroptimist International of Grand Erie. Click on the video below to see why these young women think it’s a great event. No matter what year its being held, or whether it’s in person or online the participants and mentors can be sure to meet new friends, role models, learn new skills, find their passion and have OH so much fun!
In February 2021, in collaboration with Councillor Judi Partridge and Healthy Youth Network, we hosted the inaugural Be Brave and Bloom Digital Conference. Get all the details here »
